C up & Saucer Set. CUP - As Found / SAUCER - Perfect.
A bouquet of dark pink rose, blue and purple daisies and forget-me-knots and leaves on a completly gilded burnished gold background covering the entire cup interior and the entire saucer. Elongated ear handle which is also extensively gilded.Probably dates from the 1940s. The saucer is excellent undamaged condition with no chips, cracks, repairs, hairlines or restoration and pass the ping test of bone china perfectly; the cup sadly has a very tight and virtually invisible 1/2" hairline which I only found when the cup would not "ping completely and is honestly not visible on the gold interior - I dare you to find it; the cup handle has also been broken off and re-glued - again very difficult to find; other than these, the cup has no other chips, cracks, hairlines or other damage. No wear to transfer or material wear to the gold surfaces noted (some surface scratches to gold surface commensurate with age); the burnished gold truly has a great patina. A few glaze crazing lines on the underside of the cup base. Cup measures 2" tall at sides and 2 5/8" to top of handle and is 5 1/4" across including handle; the saucer is 5 5/8" across.
Marked as shown in the photo with pattern number 8590 and letter J handpainted in gold on cup base. Please ignore all white spots on photos caused by camera flash.
This lovely set would make a great addition to your collection even as a shelf piece. Please remember that my items are vintage and not store-bought-new and some minor wear from age and normal use should be expected. I do try and describe my items accurately. Please examine all photos carefully. All items will be packed in bubble wrap and surrounding packing.
